Why did the chicken cross the road? How strange can it get when two friends decide to debate pizza, philosophy and the nature of debate itself? When is a simple marketing flyer anything but a simple marketing flyer? What could possibly be the harm in a lovely cup of tea among friends? Would you hire an odd and overqualified applicant for a job in a burger joint? We’re all locked down in our homes with our beloved families — but, where do we go when we need to get away from our beloved families? All of these intriguing questions will be given very entertaining answers in The Garfield Center for the Arts’ upcoming SHORT ATTENTION SPAN THEATRE ONLINE 2020 starting September 18th.

This year’s online SAST will mark the first time in which all of the plays will be from local writers. Those plays include “A Room of My Own,” by Elkton’s Michael Collins, two plays, “Act Now!” and “Two Broody Hens,” by Rich Pauli of Annapolis, “Job Interview,” by Dover’s Howard Mesick, “The Tea Drinkers,” by Worton’s Mark Sullivan, and “Epistemology” by Chestertown’s Steven Arnold.

“A Room of My Own” is directed by Jennifer Kafka Smith and features Kelly Young, Amanda Fry and Lucia Foster. “Act Now!” Is directed by Zachary Ryan and features Dan Guidice and Hester Sachse. “Two Broody Hens” is directed by Jennifer Kafka Smith and features Jen Friedman, Melissa McGlynn and John Mann. “Job Interview” is directed by Nic Carter and features the father-daughter team of Brian and Shannon Whitaker. “The Tea Drinkers” is directed by Mark Sullivan and features Connie Fallon, Robbie Spray, and Francoise Sullivan. “Epistemology” is directed by Steven Arnold and features Nic Carter and Dylan Lyles.
